bases there with your own r.c. with me you national paula hello and welcome to the program the u.k. security services are under fire for failing to prevent the brutal daylight murder of a soldier in london two suspects arrested at the scene both british citizens have been trying to buy and i find if we get is and one of them was allegedly even offered a job by the agency the killing of muslims by british forces overseas was used as justification for that but despite fresh fears of homegrown terror. defending the country's foreign policy. reports. a flag at half mast a grizzly attack with a machete style knife and a murdered soldier his death leaves behind a two year old son they seemingly behind this grissom act seeking to bring scenes of violence usually seen in war ravaged parts of the world to the london suburb of
will in a poignant interview r.t. spoke to an army officer he told us of the reaction among some in the armed forces to remain anonymous angry at the moment and. not scared scared. you never get someone to. be scared i witness accounts of the priests attack details the men chanting islam is slogans as the body of soldier drama leave it be a second battalion the royal regiment do you still is they only pleading they ask people to be da then if you listen to the words of the attackers themselves it's clear that they will wish to bring the war which they saw prosecuted on the streets of baghdad and kabul to the streets of london this speaking at a press conference london mayor boris johnson okayed many senior political figures by trying to distance this latest act of violence in the case of recent data seize exploits this is not
a question of blaming the religion of islam it is certainly not a question of blaming any aspect of british foreign policy or what british troops are do in operations abroad when they risk our lives on behalf of all of us the london mayor in charge at the time of the london two thousand and five bombings disagrees they are lying they are completely complicit with the united states policy to cite tony blair was with george bush they are prepared to stand and say well we think this strategy has been a disaster it has been a disaster not just for the young man killed on the streets of london but for the hundreds of thousands of. people in afghanistan and in iraq who've been killed a simple reality if you invade other people's countries they will come back it's one side of an argument but one that's going to be weighing heavily on many now that this has hit so close to home you feel less secure i think that's one
ace. i think if we went out there then perhaps a bit more space scope for al qaeda to produce the cells they'd be approachable within ukraine because when we're out there with strict space and allowing them that freedom and over them that means bicycle bryson's i view is we can both say the arguments because we're out there we're inspiring them all motivates in the presence of the resource motivating the cells that back in the u.k. to operate more and carry out more attacks as the police investigation continues a deep sense of guilt and outrage from the local community here in southeast london at that brutal attack and the sentiment echoed across the country as people struggle to come to terms with how a crime like that could happen here so artsy london in the wake of becoming carried out by alleged islam is a series of attacks on muslims and most have taken place across britain
ultranationalist and clashed with police in several cities and a number of people have been arrested for radically motivated as sold more than one hundred fifty such incidents have been reported in the u.k. since wednesday's killing on his bill don't just cause the reasons behind the latest violence with editor of politics dot co dot u.k. and carlos called t.v. and from the right wing british national party. what immigration be responsible immigration custody eight are these good tools you have get across the u.k. people who find difficulties who will find you to integrate. all right and they don't want a lawyer to find that example it's immigration isn't working it's irresponsible and there isn't enough included in this efficiencies that i give you you know not on sort of course the major but i really want to marry a major problem with what he's saying is that this acts of terrorism really
conducted by the far right you very generously describe the b.n.p. as a right wing party idea they're not right wing they're far right they're a fascist party and the acts of violence that they perpetrate against mosques against property the threats against muslims these are also acts of terrorism these are also acts of violence by non-state actors political means well i've got to learn from and i thought it was something to do with my how to help like i'll take it all exaggeration here is done by right wing fanatics and i have to come to the person. the other person who is talking no he said no to completely the front the i personally have an open dialogue with most in communities that recently i had a debate with muslim communities in books in but the city in london about these very issues of religion. for employees. will be foreigners will
tell you about the. issue of these racist you should learn about what are you know proud of on ok just listen to mr dunn now please but you know i wouldn't don't know we don't know we don't. have websites people from east. people from from they. let me really judge their members it also implies to me that i went. and some other lunatics who also agree with your demented view of the world however that does not mean that you know what is there what is their mission actually was he is a us all right you know yet if you just talk just for it is that it don't you know i just ask you shorted the british people died there are appalled by what's happened they want to stroll response from government they don't want a reaction that could be tempered by fears of political incorrectness what should be done there's going to be some strong reaction surely political ground this really has no connection to where the you have a viable response to a terrorist incident stopping terrorism is about having joined up services by
intelligence agencies by the police by mental health authorities by schools by the muslim community these are the kind of sensible out news that you take to prevent violence they show. we are social programs combined with out these us first foreign policy. disregard for the rights of other countries and of course people who who are leaving in isolation cut more links with the outside world than with what if. and when the british government's goal on the rampage of course they are on grief. over failure of integration and for me and my five agent on any machine says there's growing frustration among muslims of the deadly western interventions around. individualistic lone wolf style attacks which don't require great planning don't
require some sort of specialist equipment or anything will become perhaps one of the main ways that people can make protests and it's a horrific attack there is no doubt about it and my heart goes out to the family of the victim but what we're looking at is also an angry voice yelling out from north africa the middle east from central asia from all the people have been victimized by the interventionist policies of the us of the u.k. of nato or france i mean not just iraq and afghanistan but libya in mali in some in yemen and of course what we're looking at is a whole country that's been decimated now by the cia killing which are a presidential you proved in the u.s. every week and also drone strikes which are not targeted they take out a whole villages communities and wedding parties even so of course there's going to be anger. meanwhile french police are investigating an apparent copycat attack in
paris where soldier was stabbed and nearly killed the suspect reportedly a bit of mind of north african origin is on the run with a manhunt underway but the french president has stopped short of linking that tank to the london actress and journalist account says the violence will be used to demonize muslims and draw attention from failed government policies these type of attacks plays into the structed york the state to promote a false sense of islam so that is done so what people of the masses around the world conceive wrongly as islam is a disgusting version of the face and in so doing criminalizes all muslims around the world and then they use these groups in asia to conduct the stabilisation of the french who go in pretending to be the neutral arbitrators bringing peace and stability this is a big game or theater smoke and mirrors that really has to be distinctive from from a position that is opposing western hegemony as part of the state strategy is to make sure that everyone is pointing fingers at everyone but the actual arbitrators
of the economic crisis of police corruption or unjust an immoral foreign policy i.e. those in power in front. seven consecutive days of street violence have a shot at stockholm's image as an idyllic scandinavian say to despite additional units being sent from sweden's other regions police have not been able to curb the youth riots they fussed ignited in ground suburbs last sunday but spread beyond the capital this week she's been on of the investigators they call them arrest. nice neat and normal not the type of place you would expect to see this. speak on the outskirts of stockholm the epicenter of sweden's machine with a race and it's bubbling over in sweden you get welfare you get access to the education system up to university level you get access to public transport to libraries to have care to everything and still they feel that they need to throw
stones and molotov cocktails it's ridiculous it's a bad excuse the violence in the usually peaceful city has become a political football the swedish democrats are exploiting these events they make it all about immigration to suit their needs they see being anti immigrant as being pro sweden for the past week stone throwing and burning become the norm in this part of town for its high unemployment rate dominantly immigrant population all sparked down three sixty nine year old man was gunned down by police brandishing a knife that's let loose a to run leash of emotions it's the state what it creates the type of gets wise ation of men so they move everyone from the road into these parts of town when it comes to unemployment sweeteners below average of almost one quarter of under twenty out of work prompting some to say it's time for further action saying
a lack of control by government has led to the situation the police can put these right down in five minutes if the politicians were to allow them although swedes defer over what caused this week's violence they are in agreement that it's government policy that must be changed to avoid scenes like this being repeated on the streets of stockholm peter all of r.t. sweden. this is so sick on this hour a lot of promises. claims that he's going to further limit. motorbike drone program us president obama talks national security leaving spurs to wonder whether his new promises will they have. also a woman has been behind bars in the u.k. simply for wanting to look up to her dying father details just ahead. on going global food giant monsanto swept across six continents on such

watching the weekly when i was here welcome back this week president obama unveiled a new face to the war on terror while speaking about america's national defense policy is called for more transparency in trials trikes stressing they are only a way to combat insurgents and for the first time obama can on issues that for american citizens hundred carolwood and counterterrorism drone strikes has to thousand line and activists david swanson believes they only serve to hurt even more terrorists he claims that he is going to further limit is murdered by drone program including applying these arbitrary criteria met in secret by
himself to his own satisfaction to non americans at least in certain countries countries other than afghanistan and yet he's not provided publicly any documentation of the claims he's made thus far i mean if if he would rather have captured ardmore or locky why did he not indict him with with any criminal charges or provide any evidence to anyone that he was guilty of any criminal act this is this is not transparency and if these reforms and limitations are needed on this program then what of the conduct of this program here too for is it not as criminal and abusive as it appears and for the second time in five years bronco bamma promised the shotgun time of day and promised to lift his own martorano on transferring detainees to yemen over one hundred of the one hundred sixty six prisoners in the notorious camp have been stopping themselves for almost four
months in protest against indefinite detention without challenge one former got of the prison says he's gone time to experience has left him psychologically scarred. some of the some of the tactics that i saw practice in guantanamo i just never really want to wish to relive again omar carter and a number of other detainees they were privileged to something we called the frequent flyer program were routed essentially move them every two hours whether removing them from camp delta camp echo or moving them from bravo block to charlie block be it a little move or a big idea was that every two hours they would be moved and they wouldn't be able to sleep this was essentially thought to wear down their psyche and make them more . probable to give up information during interrogation the only reason the detainees are being force is that the u.s. military or rather the powers that be are scared that these men have enough conviction to literally starve to death and they know that if these men do starve
to death it will make the u.s. look bad in the global perspective as it stands right now the we have so many millions of dollars of taxpayer money in one hundred but if you just devoted another four hundred fifty million i think that's just perfect evidence right there there's no intention to close it one way or the you know and some news and bring figure this out now and two rockets have hit a hezbollah district of the lebanese capital beirut leaving at least five people injured that top stock concern that through as conflict may spill into lebanon which has some of the sectarian divides this comes bad day after the lebanese hezbollah leader promise to victory to his ally president a son while condemning the u.s. and israel for supporting the rebels has an ally is now helping to say we're an army to push opposition fighters out of their strongholds. sixty one people have been arrested following violent clashes at a techno music parade in the swiss company byrne police used water cannons and tear
gas on anticapitalist hardliners known as the blank block clashes broke out one of the protesters attempted to tear down temporary barricades blocking parliament. and of thousands of people are protesting in central paris over the country's new same sex marriage and adoption act that came into force a week ago the demonstrators say they want to show their opposition to present all learned well prioritizing the issue over the economy france is now the ninth country in europe to legalize gay marriage previous anti gay marchers have ended in clashes between the far right and the police. secret court in the u.k. has put some people behind bars just for trying to take care of their own relatives one woman whose father was pronounced mentally ill was locked away but says the hearings are behind closed doors it's hard to know why his porter boyko investigates when john maddox was diagnosed with dementia his children ivan and
wanda intended to give him the best care they could but they clashed with social workers and their local council which took the family to the secret court of protection it ruled that the eight year old lack the mental capacity to make his own decisions and needed to live in a special care home he didn't want to be in a home basically told he didn't want to be in a home. you want to want to go with one to the final whom he went i'm swear to god to deal with after market. the court makes rulings on behalf of citizens deemed to one well to be responsible for their own affair as it has power to take control of assets and separate family members all in secret one day and i even want to allow to take their father out of the state run facility or even discuss his living arrangements with him but he kept on asking me want to go home but i did a lot to tell him that it didn't mean i was any more they've got it because one of
the court protection the sickos will do whatever they want with finances in its house what watch are going to be locked up in these rooms we can't write. i don't feel free. in order to mount a legal challenge to the secret court ruling wonder took her father to see a solicitor one day tried to draw attention to the case but was sentenced to prison for contempt of the secret court so instead of caring for her father like she wanted to she had to spend two months in here in the company of criminals i cried the first two days i was in the prison i cried because nobody you treated like an ardent criminals in michigan and there you really cannot challenge the question as to whether somebody has mental capacity or not without talking to them and she was in prison firstly for taking her father to see a solicitor in birmingham which makes it sound quite peculiar well in
a sense it's worse than dr drew conan because draco would not have gone that far when i was in the jail i was frightened because he lets them into a phone calls so i was afraid to speak to dad. because i'm the commission's report on is and also you know in case they got in more trouble meanwhile her brother and i even watched their father's health deteriorate under the strain of her absence in the end when he moved into that final home that was the end of him and he wanted it wanted still moved him anything i said you got to know this she divorce. she's put herself in prison port. observers say the difficulty with justice behind closed doors is that no one knows if the law is being followed the evidence is heard in private defendants often lack legal representation and until out to publicize their case in essence it is giving the state too much power to intervene in people's lives preventing people complaining about what's being done to them is never right the government's faced
a barrage of criticism over the practice of secret justice justice secretary chris grayling has said i have written to the president of the court to ask him to look at what steps can be taken to increase transparency while continuing to protect the interest of vulnerable adults but john maddox never got to go to his home or to his family he died in january of this year it's worried me what we've done that taken their dad away from him and i keep wondering what's going on to us when we get older you know you've got to be really careful and not say like polly boy came. stoke on trent. i want to come back in a moment to look into the wont of gadgets and gizmos and technology on day.
paranoia and zero tolerance policies strike yet again the latest in a string of children being punished for making gun noises or playing with toy guns involves a son of a u.s. marine who had the audacity as a child to use his imagination and p. pretended his pencil was our gun banger children imitate what they see in every t.v. channel and in many video games kids are going to see a lot of guns in fact the boy at that moment was admirably pretending to be just like his father a us marine you know guns kind of come with that job description rather than complain you all again about the obvious idiocy of zero tolerance policies against children playing let me give one suggestion to actually help fix the problem there are so many teachers and school administrators across america that i bet many of you know one of them try talking them about the madness of zero tolerance a lot of people do things just because they were told to or they never thought about it before so please dear friends try to get teachers you know to actually
think about it i can complain on t.v. all day long but one conversation from a friend or relative really could change many people's minds maybe but that's just my opinion. do we speak your language anybody will not advance. the music programs and documentaries in spanish more matters to you breaking news a little tonnage of angles kittens stories. for you here. to enjoy it all to spanish find out more visit.
